MOVEMBER

For Movember this year, we want as many Aston students pledging to grow their moustaches out as possible!

The more that pledge, the more money we can raise for prostate & testicular cancer, as well as for mental health. So if you or someone you know would like to pledge to take part in Movember, please let me know by dropping me an email: union.vpw@aston.ac.uk.

We’re aiming to raise as much as we can for the Movember Foundation, so even if you are sponsored by a club or society, the money will go into one pot as “Aston does Movember”!  

Have a look here for more info about the cause: https://uk.movember.com/get-involved/moustachery
